Leaf Blower Turbocharged Ford Ranger (HUGE Power)
This short clip is an out take from C3's Dyno Day back in October 2009.
There was a wager that the Ford Ranger would not make more power with the
leaf blower, we were able to prove otherwise.
Results were +15 WHP with a Stihl leaf blower jammed into the intake tube
on the Ford Ranger.
Thanks to DeBaise Brothers of Wallingford, Connecticut for use of their Dyno.
2.3 Turbo Ranger on the dyno
My Ranger finally making some numbers on the chassis Dyno. We got to 204 at the
wheel, but we started to blow the spark out a 18 psi. We shall fix that
problem and then more Boost. Not
too bad for an engine that made 100 at the flywheel stock. Megasquirt fuel
injection, forged rods and pistons. Stock 96' block and crankshaft, stock
bore, stock head, stock intake, stainless header & downpipe, T3-T04 turbo. 8.8 rear end W/ 3.73 LS, lowered 5"
inches. Let me know what ya think. We will get more videos as we get
further in the testing / tuning.
1927 Ford: Double-Trouble -- /BIG MUSCLE
• Gordon Tronson
In the world of hot-rodding there are few cars that are going to leave as
big an impression as this - the 1927 Ford Model T custom simply known as
"Double-Trouble". It rides on a custom-built tube chassis that's fabricated
from 1.5-inch tube. Is powered by two 4.6-liter modular V8s from Ford with
four, count 'em, FOUR Superchargers for
an approximate power output of around 1,200 hp. It also utilizes the
rear-end (inboard disc brakes and all) from an early Jaguar. It's a rolling
a Hot Wheels car and a masterpiece of engineering that is sure to make all
your naughty bits tingle.
